Cisco Systems is said to have focused on the Internet of Everything (IoE), which basically connects everything to everything. From people, to mobile devices, smart gadgets and homes, transportation networks, data, processes, a world where every device capable of connecting to the internet will be connected and synced with each other. The number of estimated connected devices is said to be 15 to 25 billion by 2015, and will drastically show an increase to 50 billion by 2020.
“Cisco has led customers through every Internet transition over the last 30 years,” said Blair Christie, Cisco Senior VP and chief marketing officer, in a statement. “The Internet of Everything is perhaps the most promising of these, creating unprecedented opportunities for organizations, individuals, communities and countries to realize dramatically greater value from networked connections between people, processes, data and things.”
The Internet of Everything has been implemented by Cisco to cope with employees’ needs, where everyone has been bringing their own devices to work, and all needed to work properly in the working environment. And this is a good thing, since IoE services offer long-form content, location-based and profile data, sensors-collected data, as well as home/control/automation features available at home and in the workplace.
